Our guys are still moving their way eastward across the country as they participate in the Fireball Run, and here's a quick peek at what happened on days three and four of the Run.
On Day Three, our guys had no problems with the Fireball Run's assorted missions, only missing one 10-point bonus. But despite being armed with a battery of navigation systems, our intrepid co-drivers struggled a bit with navigation. This isn't their fault--technology led them astray.
Yes, even in 2010, GPS navigation isn't perfect, and it can lead you into a 50-mile cellular dead spot--twice. So our guys have learned to trust their gut, as well as the locals, although the quality of the directions from the locals was inconsistent at best.
But our team persevered, and they are having fun out there.
So much fun, in fact, that after putting lessons learned on Day Three to work on Day Four, our guys snapped up 40 bonus points and were in the front third of the pack at day's end. Right now, the High Gear Media Camaro SS is in third place, with six track events and six days of missions to go.
Right now, the gang is in the middle of the longest and perhaps toughest day of the event, and it seems they've had a presidential encounter. Keep checking here for updates, and also be sure to follow the team on Facebook and Twitter.
